5.0 out of 5 stars I never knew I needed this so much, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: BIC For Her Medium Ballpoint Pen (Box of 12) - Black (Office Product)
Oh. My. God. I've been doing it all wrong. There was me thinking I didn't need to worry about whether my writing implement sufficiently reflected my gender. Thank you so much Bic for showing me the error of my ways. Perhaps Bic will also bring out a new range of pink (or purple) feminine spanners, screwdrivers, electric drills and angle grinders so that I can carry out my job as a bicycle mechanic without further embarrassing myself? Luckily my male colleagues have managed to keep their disapproval of my use of their masculine tools to themselves. I'm so ashamed. And re-educated as to my place in society. Thanks again Bic!

whereas i totally agree with you, they already have female screwdrivers and hammers. it's really silly.

Yup - Someone bought me a trowel with lovely pink flowers all over it from that range. Still, that wasn't marketed soley to women quite as blatantly as this is.

There are indeed Lady's spades for digging the garden, slightly smaller, though not pink.

I like my "feminine" tools. My husband is less likely to steal (and abuse) them if they have flowers and pink on them. It's like camo for tools. :)

I work on the edge of 'Real Man' world, and have also found that 'embellished' tools stay in my van for longer. It's fun to watch hardened builders recoil from flower decorated measuring tapes. Alas most of the range are a bit light weight (not in a good way).

Hi, I can print some stickey labels for the handle of your screwdrivers to show which way to turn them if you like!
